MBA with a Sustainability Focus Ranked Among Top 10 in the World

In the face of global resource challenges, Duquesne’s full-time MBA with a focus on sustainability has again been ranked as one of the world’s best MBA programs for future leaders. Corporate Knights, a quarterly international publication focused on social, economic and ecological benefits and costs, released its 2015 Better World MBA ranking, listing the Donahue Graduate School of Business as No. 10 among MBA programs worldwide and No. 4 among U.S. schools, just behind Harvard Business School.

“Increasingly, companies everywhere are realizing that implementing sustainability principles offers long-term business advantages,” said Dr. Dean McFarlin. “Consequently, we are very pleased that Corporate Knights has recognized the extraordinary program we have built thanks to the passionate commitment of our faculty.”

The ranking highlighted 121 institutions around the globe, looking at the best packages of core courses, research and support centers to foster sustainability-oriented learning.  “… The Better World MBA ranking aims to identify which MBAs best prepare graduates to change the world for the better and succeed in this shifting business climate,” the publication said.

As Corporate Knights noted, “…These top schools are–compared to their peers–tops at teaching corporate leaders of tomorrow how to hit the ground running.”
